Home: About Bad For People is dedicated to exposing:

  1. Helping Victims of Internet Defamation reduce the damage done to their careers, businesses, and families.
  2. Prosecutorial Misconduct and Bureaucrats who overstep their mandates.
  3. Fallacious Journalists and editors in the mainstream media, who engage in “media manipulation”.
    1. This malfeasance is often motivated by the prospect of financial gain through increased advertising revenue, due to the number of “page views” their sensational articles receive, or in more pernicious examples, due to “payoffs” by special-interest groups or corporate bribes.
    2. Alternatively, inaccurate attack pieces published by some journalists is simply a result of their inability to find any truth that is worth writing about. In order to keep their jobs, or to satisfy their own egos, they will often resort to turning fiction into fact to sell newspapers. Often at the expense of innocent people with clean hands. Controversy sells newspapers, controversy generates “page views” on websites.

  1. … you had to make the good out of the bad because there wasn’t anything else to make it out of …
    – Robert Penn Warren, All the King’s Men

    If by Rudyard Kipling:

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster
    And treat those two imposters just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breath a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch;
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!

    Anyway, THANK YOU, Michael!

  2. It’s empowering to read this. I, too, have decided that the lesson is detachment. Sometimes you fight your best fight by mentally detaching yourself from a senseless struggle. Once you have done all you can do, you can release the problem and allow God to the rest. I am confident that everything will right itself in the end. Many blessings to you.

  5. Hello,

    I just found your site and saw your YouTube video. I almost cried watching it. After being stalked and harassed since 2001 my stalker found ripoff report and posted complete lies. He was finally prosecuted by a county attorney but it took years to gather enough proof, he faced felony charges but ended up pleading to misdemeanor stalking charges. I have copies of everything yet Ripoff won’t remove the lies. Since their site at first glance looks legitimate people who don’t know me think the things are true. Being stalked and then having a site like ripoff assist the stalker has been devastating. I have always had a good reputation but now I must keep quiet. I can’t volunteer anywhere, I can’t run to be on the local school board, etc. Thank you for the work you are doing. I will write a letter to my congressman. Thank you again.


  6. I am in danger of getting into legal trouble for posting on ripoff report and exreport. The people who i reported don’t know about it yet, but i am scared that i will get into troube for what i posted. I admitt that i had exaggerated what i reported, but i was honest. At the time i was suffering from a drug withdrawl and wa sunable to tell right from wrong, but the authorities involved don’t give a hoot about my reasons for doing wrong and enjoy filling their pockets full of money from my court case!

    If i had known that ripoff report and exreport were scams/were trying to rip me off and did not allow editing/removing posts for free, i would have never used those sites to report bad people.

    People have a right to report bad people and businesses, but its not ok to lie in the reports. Some people who want the sites removed are bad people whoa re trying to cover up their wrong doing while others are innocent. I understand that the report sites make lives miserable, however, there are innocent people who use the sites correctly, but if anyone changes their mind about posting, these are the people who are scammed by these report sites! The BBB cannot/will not help everyone, so the victims think that the only solution is ripff report and exreport. These people are not psychos, they are real victims who deserve fair treatment in the law! Stop brushing them under the rug and try to help them please!

  8. A pure discrimination of US people comparing to EU citizens, thanks to the CDA Section 230 (C) and non-self-executing exceptions in “ratified” ICCPR (articles 1-27) …
    At least there are some good news for citizens of countries, which signed and ratified the ICCPR in full and where protection against unlawful attacks on people’s honor and reputation is THE LAW!

  9. Michael,

    Let me know if you ever need witness testimony. I’ve won four cases against Vexatious Litigator Philip Seldon in New York State Supreme court over the past three (3) years but it’s been costly and time consuming. I’ve prevented him via Judges from filing any more litigation cases anywhere unless he obtains court approval prior by the Court Administrative Judge. Philip Seldon is currently being reviewed by the New York State Supreme Court by my request for damages and frivolous litigation behavior and requested incarceration for his stalking and harassment, plus seeking monetary damages. We’ll see what happens. He filed another case in Arizona Federal Court but the decision is pending at the present time.
